Report: X-rays negative on A.J. Brown’s ribs

The X-rays on A.J. Brown’s ribs came back negative Monday, but the Tennessee Titans wide receiver is undergoing further tests, according to NFL Network.

Brown, 24, suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans with what was called a chest injury. He played 42 snaps before exiting with five catches for 48 yards. He also injured his hand.

Brown, 24, has 46 catches for 615 yards and three touchdowns on the season. He missed the Titans’ Week 4 game with a hamstring injury.

The Titans are already without Derrick Henry for the rest of the season and fellow WR Julio Jones for at least one more game with a hamstring injury. Jones was put on injured reserve Nov. 13.

The Titans (8-3) still lead the AFC South by two games and play at New England (7-4) this Sunday.
